Make a Gift of Hope or Support

Our Donors

Our donors are caring individuals, groups and foundations who are pillars of our community. They serve society through their gifts and grants and contribute to making our 24 towns a better place in the world. Their support helps fund the work of our hotline operators, the advocates who work in the courts with our clients and their children, our case management and safety planning and of course, the operating and other expenses of our emergency safe house. Their impact on the families of Interval House will be felt for years to come.

Interval House is a 501 (c) nonprofit organization and your contributions are tax deductible.


Interval House is dedicated to ending domestic violence and providing services that will prevent and break the cycle of family and intimate partner abuse.

We strive to reach all persons at risk and bring about social change.

The true measure of our mission is the impact we make on women’s lives, their families and the community we serve.

Gift Structure Options


Naming Interval House in your will or trust is a popular way to support the organization and carry out your charitable interests. A bequest can be designed to establish an endowment fund or any purpose you choose, and can designate a specific amount or percentage of your estate. Bequests are revocable if circumstances change.

Retirement Assets

Retirement plan assets are ideal to give to charities when you are gone because they are so heavily taxed if left to heirs. By naming Interval House as a remainder beneficiary of these assets, you can leave a very efficient legacy.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

Create a charitable remainder trust, and you and a spouse or loved one* will receive income payments for life, or a specific number of years. Remaining assets then go to Interval House to benefit the mission. Tax benefits include an immediate income tax deduction and removal of the asset from your estate.

Charitable Gift Annuities

Give a gift of $10,000 or more, and increase your income while leaving a gift to the Interval House. You (and a spouse or loved one*) will receive income for life, based on your ages at the time of the gift, or you can choose to defer payments to a later time such as retirement. Tax advantages include:

  • An immediate income-tax deduction
  • Potentially beneficial treatment of the annuity payments

Charitable Lead Trusts

Support Interval House now and your family later with a charitable lead trust. Your trust pays income to the organization for a period of years and then passes the assets, often appreciated, to your children or grandchildren with minimal or no gift or estate taxes.

*Please consult your tax advisor for tax implications of different beneficiary choices.
